    Try adjusting the linkage at the bottom of the shifter arm.

    All I ever do is loosen up the bolt on the bottom end of the arm, make sure the tranny is fully in park (even if you have to use a screwdriver or pliers to move the lever coming right out of the tranny) hold it in park and tighten the bolt back up.
